Toxic-free jeans. Armedangels will demonstrate how that works and what the new Detox collection looks like. The jeans are bleached without chlorine and have Jacron paper patches and buttons that are free of heavy metals. Dawn Denim is also specialised in sustainable denims. With its so-called “Respect Codes”, the brand makes the supply chain of their #lowimpact jeans transparent. And ingredient brand ISKO has also dedicated itself to responsible production with resource-friendly denims and its principle “Reduce – Re-use – Recycle”. The recycling issue is at the very top of the agenda for the more of 200 exhibitors at Neonyt. Renewcell from Sweden has managed to achieve closed-loop textile production. Textile cotton and viscose waste is re-used to produce new cellulose fibres. The chemicals used are also re-used. Got Bag, for instance, presents post-consumer recycling solutions by producing backpacks, weekender bags and laptop bags made of plastic waste fished from the ocean. High-tech meets sustainability. Jack Wolfskin proves that with Tech Lab, a multifunctional premium collection using forward-thinking materials like Microguard Maxloft or RDS certified ultra-light down feathers. The goal of Staiy, the new online platform for sustainable brands, is to make sure that customers quickly and easily find sustainable styles that suit them. To reach that goal, the company has developed an individual AI-aided style algorithm.
Just as exciting are the numerous speeches and lectures that form the Neonyt conference Fashionsustain. Speakers like Harald Cavalli-Björkmann from renewcell, Joao Matias from YKK, Elgar Straub from VDMA and José Pinot from Lemon Jelly will focus on recycling processes in the fashion industry. Marte Hentschel from Sqetch and Sourcebook takes a step further with her “Innovation Thinking – Is Global Circularity the Key?” contribution. She will be joined in discussions by Sarah Herms from Tchibo, August Bard-Bringués from Asket, Mikkel Hansen from Exploratorium/Fung Group and Daniel Pinto from Scoop. The HIGG index, the standard for dated-driven circularity in the fashion industry, is opening up to retail. A briefing on 15th January 2020 will give more information.
Fairness in the textile supply chain by law – this is what the campaign #fairbylaw is promoting. Hessnatur will run a video booth for visitors, exhibitors and partners of Neonyt during the three days of the trade show to submit statements and sign a petitition to pass a supply chain law. Hessnatur is the exclusive partner of the upcoming Neonyt.
